    On Sunday in Berlin, in the final of the German Open, 23-year-old 2nd-seeded # 4 Nadia Petrova from Moscow, Russia, the runner up last year, narrowly defeated the 2002, 2003, & 2005 Berlin champ, 3rd-seeded 23-year-old # 5 Justine Henin-Hardenne of Belgium (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco) 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 (Nadia is shown with the gold falcon of the Qatar Tennis Federation, which runs the German Open as well as the tourney in Doha, Qatar-- Nadia held the falcon there this year, too).
    The last time Justine had lost in Berlin was in 2001 to Jennifer Capriati; Justine's German Open match record is now 24-2. Nadia had only defeated Justine once in 9 career matches. It was Nadia's 15th match victory in a row, all on clay, and she has won the last three tourneys she has played in. Nadia lost the first four WTA singles finals that she played in-- and has won the last five.

    Nadia called for the trainer after she won the 2nd set. Nadia said: "I don't know what to say. My legs were tired, my back began to hurt in the second set and I had problems serving. All I could do was fight."WTA story
    Justine said: "I didn't do the right things all the time, and that's why I lost today... I knew [Nadia] was going to be very offensive, and that's what she did, and that's why she won." Reuters story

    In the final of the Prague Open on Sunday, 19-year-old 3rd-seeded # 36 Shahar Peer from Maccabim, Israel, defeated 22-year-old 5th-seeded # 55 Samantha Stosur from Gold Coast, Australia, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 (Shahar is shown after match point).
    Shahar said: "It is my second final and second title, it was great week and I'm happy for that. In the second set I started to play more agressive, tried to win the first few points and not to let [Samantha] move me around." WTA story
    Samantha said: "I started really well the first set, but [Shahar] definitely picked up her game, made me run, played to my backhand, and started to be very agressive afterwards."

    Berlin: The main draw for Berlin has 16 seeds, with 8 1st-round byes. There are 8 qualifiers and 4 wild cards in the main draw. Qualifying finals are on Sunday.

Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nadia Petrova, Patty Schnyder, and Justine Henin-Hardenne met the press in Berlin on Monday.

16-year old German wild card Sabine Lisicki (left) also spoke to reporters on Monday, who no doubt asked her if it was very difficult being so young and pretty. Martina Hingis (right), who has lived through this problem to the ripe old age of 25, arrived to practice on Sunday. And German # 1 Anna-Lena Groenefeld (center) did pretty well at the draw on Saturday; after her 1st round bye, she will face either # 37 Catalina Castano or # 115 Sandra Kloesel in the 2nd round (put your hair down, ladies, you'll sell more tickets).

    Amelie said: "It was a pretty good match, considering this is my first clay court tournament of the year. I wasn't expecting everything to be working perfectly, but overall I was pretty happy. I think one of the main things to deal with is to become patient on the clay. The first match is always interesting because you’re not used to playing so many balls, so that takes a while to get used to."

    Maria had taken Justine to three sets in the 2nd round in Berlin in 2005. Justine said: "We had a very tough match here last year and I knew she can be very dangerous. I'm happy with an easy match, it means I'll be fresher for the rest of the tournament hopefully...
    "It's amazing when I look back how I was able to do so well on clay last year with all my injuries. I'm definitely fresher this year going into Roland Garros; losing in Charleston already takes some of the pressure off me. My goal for this year is to stay healthy and play a full schedule and I'll take that over winning a Grand Slam. That shows how much this means to me. I just love being out there and competing on the court."

    Elena had defeated Martina the last three times they had played (they are now tied 3-3 in career matches). In Filderstadt in October, 2002, Elena won the last match that Martina played before her 3-year retirement due to ankle injuries. Elena also defeated Martina earlier this year, in the final in Tokyo, 6-2, 6-0.

    Martina said: "Today I played one of my best matches, I had to. It was a very high level match and I definitely picked the right moments to come in and finish off the points. I'm proud of the fact I was able to step it up today when I played a better player, I was able to improve my level. That's what I was able to do when I was younger, to keep a high level up throughout the match... The last three times we played I wasn't even in the match. I knew I had nothing to lose. I knew I had to attack [Elena], stay close to my baseline and hit very deep, because otherwise you're history with her ground strokes being so good."

    Elena said: "[Martina] played very well today, taking charge and dictating the points, which was my game plan against her. My balls were quite short, which allowed her to take control, and she's too good to do this against her."

The difference was how I played the tie-break in the second set. I played aggressive on every point and that made the difference. These are the kinds of matches you need before a Grand Slam, and I'm very happy to have come through in this one."

It's always a surprise to win these kinds of matches so easily, but I took it step by step because you can never think it's easy, you have to win every single point."

    Amelie said: "I didn't have the best schedule with having to play one set this morning and then my semifinal, but that's the way it goes and you have to adjust. Justine played very well today so all the credit to her."

    About the final, Justine said: "Tomorrow will be a tough match. Petrova is one of the best players on clay. She has proven that she is the one in confidence right now."
